Paper Creations Ink

Hello Lovelies!  I hope you are having a wonderful day.  I certainly am!  Today I am starting my GDT over at Paper Creations Ink and it is a wonderful challenge.  Unfortunately it is the last challenge at PCI due to personal reasons.  We sure will hate to see them go!  This cards I am sowing today are so totally not my style but I can assure you I had great fun making them… who knows maybe I will start being more eclectic in the way I make my art from now on!!!! 

Ok on to the Challenge: Here is what the lovelies over at PCI have to say…
Good Morning Everyone! Welcome to Challenge #24 "In The Garden"! Since Spring has finally come, we decided that most everyone will be working in their gardens and yards, so that would be an awesome challenge! What do you think? Just a quick reminder, you are only limited by your imagination! You can use any image for this challenge! We would LOVE to see all types of creations, whether it is a Card, Scrapbook Page, Fat Book Page, Tag, ATC (Artist Trading Card), Box, Bag, 3D ~ Altered Art, or Other Crafting Projects that has some form of paper on it!
All of our Design Team's inspiration is listed above, along with Inlinkz. This challenge will run until Sunday May 20, 2012 at 6pm CST. And for an added bonus, we will be looking for some works of art to Spotlight!

Our Sponsor for this challenge is our very own Miranda van den Bosch, she is so talented that she drew 3 Images just for us and these 3 Images will be the prize for this challenge! Isn't that an awesome prize for one lucky person? We hope that you like our creations!
Now here is a some information about Miranda!
My name is Miranda van den Bosch and I’m 47 years old. I have been drawing nearly all my life. At the age of 4 I was making drawings on a blackboard, but because my parents thought it was a pity that I had to erase all my drawings they got me paper and colour pencils. And I’ve never stopped drawing since. When I was little I used to draw portraits and Disney characters. After that I started to draw fairies and dragons. In time, I joined an art group and learned to draw nudes and still life portraits too. When I was in my 30ties I became interested in birds and started to draw them as well. And last year I published my first children’s book. It’s an ABC of birds and 26 birds tell you about birdlife in general. A good friend of mine wrote the text. About 2 years ago, I discovered card making and how I could use stamps with my colouring technique and style. I really enjoy colouring up all the cute images with watercolour or with regular colour pencils. Every week I discover new brands of stamps and I just decided to draw some digi stamps to see if other people liked them. A new world of being creative is opening up for me.

I was able to use two wonderful images from Miranda I love the bright springy colors I used as opposed to my normal dark colors.  Let me know what you think and remember to head over to PCI to enter for your chance to win so wonderful images from Miranda as well!
Here are my cards, let me know what you think!
